In the last few years, glazed donut nails have become one of the most popular manicure styles out there. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to find the right products to help you achieve that look at home. But we’ve rounded up nine of our favorite nail polishes that will give you beautiful, glazed donut nails! You can pair any color with this style, as long as it’s glossy and comes in an opaque shade! Here are some of our favorites.
Nude is a classic color that goes with any outfit and season. The best part about nude polish is that it’s not too bold, but still makes your nails pop. Whether you want an opaque or sheer finish, nude is perfect for any occasion.
You’ll need a white polish, pink polish, and a pink glitter. The first step is to paint your nails white. Allow it to dry for about 5 minutes before applying the next coat. Next, paint three sections of each nail with the pink color. Allow them to dry for about 10 minutes before applying a top coat. Finally, take a bit of glitter and sprinkle it over your nails to make them look like they have sprinkles on them!
Here’s a polish that will give you a pretty deep blue, perfect for those who like darker colors. It’s called Blueberry Cream and it’ll give you a dark yet creamy finish that will remind you of blueberry cream. If you want to mix things up, try pairing this with another color in the same family for an added pop!
This is one of the more vibrant shades that will give you a donut-inspired manicure. The color can be worn on its own or paired with other bold colors for something that pops! What’s great about this shade is that it will go well with any outfit and can easily be used as a base for other polishes.
This polish is a great color for this time of year, it reminds me of fall leaves and pumpkin spice lattes. The color is vibrant and perfect for an everyday work or school look.
I love how easy this polish goes on, I only needed one coat to get full coverage. One thing that I really like about this polish is that it dries super quickly so you don’t have to wait long before you can go do your nails again.
For this particular shade, I recommend you paint your nails before bed and let it dry overnight. In the morning, take a wet cotton pad and swipe it across your nail. The polish will be removed, but it leaves behind a perfect, donut-shaped ring of orange polish that looks like you dunked your nails in powdered sugar!
7: Creamy Yellow
Creamy Yellow is a beautiful shade of light yellow that will give your nails a glossy finish. It reminds me of my favorite donuts, glazed with sugar and so sweet. It’s perfect for summertime and goes well with any outfit!
8: Metallic Black
A fun way to achieve this color is to mix a few drops of black with your clear coat nail polish. Allow it to dry, and then apply another coat or two. Voilà! You’ll have a great black metallic look that will give you a new take on glazed donuts.
White is a classic and chic color that goes well with any outfit. It is also perfect for creating a donut nail look. We love how the sugar, sprinkles, and butter come together to make this manicure pop!
